all good things

GRAYDON CARTER’S FINAL editor’s letter was four pages long. I don’t think I have four words in me. I’ve been the editor of Rogue for eight months. That’s basically a blink. My younger self would hate me for seemingly coming up so short, or at the very least, worry and wonder why the tenure was so brief. If I could really talk to my younger self, the first thing I’d tell him would be, “Stop hating on people who go to the gym and work out as soon as possible.” Second, I’d calm his worries and say that I wouldn’t trade these last eight months for anything. Magazines were the dream. Back in high school, I’d gobble up reading editorial mastheads as lovingly as I did the actual stories. I’d imagine the…

the art of war

WE JUDGED THIS book by its cover. Don’t Sleep: The Urgent Messages of Oliver Munday (rizzoliusa.com) is bright red, and dead center are masked men holding up a scene-of-the-crime chalk outline of a body. The title above reads in black and white, sans serif, straightforward in its command, giving potential readers a taste of what’s to come. This book is primarily a social commentary, but it also reveals the background of one of the freshest minds in graphic design today. This is a man who’s made a name for himself through daring book covers and politically charged illustrations for The New York Times, The New Yorker, Time, and The Atlantic. Munday’s philosophy is simple: all art is political. At present, his protests are staged on the pages of the first ever…

hole in the wall

BEHIND MANY ARTWORKS is a white wall, sterile and unremarkable. Its neutrality makes it the backdrop of choice for the typical gallery—a white cube. Just like the walls, the viewers are neat and comfortably surrounded by other well-kept visitors in the confines of a secure building. The earliest museums were the private homes of the wealthy, many of whom maintained their own collections. Present-day museums don’t stray far from their roots. And yet, art is everywhere, beyond the “white cube.” It’s disguised as graffiti on the sidewalk, or as a person’s outrageous outfits. It’s in that song you always skip for being either too pop or too angry. If you look hard enough, anywhere can be a gallery. Modelab, a curatorial initiative, puts this idea into practice. It has mounted exhibits all…

the town that hong kong forgot

UNDERNEATH THE BRIDGE that connects the populous Hong Kong with neighboring Disneyland in Lantau is a forgotten island that seems to exist in a gap in time. From the main terminal of Tsing Yi, a modest queue of families can be seen waiting to board the bus toward Park Island, a luxury housing estate on Ma Wan Island that is most often dwarfed by its more eccentric neighbor, the Noah’s Ark evangelical theme park. A touristic oddity in its own right, the attraction features the only full-sized replica of the biblical vessel in the world, complete with a line of 67 pairs of life-like animal passengers. To add to the surreality of its existence, Ma Wan is also home to an abandoned fishing village that seems to be hidden in plain…
